None, since there can be no conversion. A pound is a measure of mass. A quart is a measure of volume. The two measure different things and, according to basic principles of dimensional analysis, conversion from one to the other is not valid. Consider a quart's worth of air. How many pounds? Next consider the same volume of lead. How many pounds? The masses of equal volumes of the two substances will clearly be very different. So there is no direct conversion between mass and volume: you need to know the density of the substance to enable you to carry out the conversion.

That will depend upon what the product is. When you are talking about water, 5.5 quarts will weigh about 11 pounds.

There is no direct comparison. Different things have different masses and will weigh different amounts.
